Puerto Rico Democratic Presidential Primary Results

July 12, 2020

Joe Biden won Puerto Rico's Democratic presidential primary Sunday.  Originally scheduled for March 29, the primary was first moved to April 26 and then indefinitely postponed.  

After today, only Connecticut remains on the presidential primary calendar.  Voters there go to the polls on August 11.  Plenty of downballot primaries remain, however.  14 states vote in August, with another 4 during the first half of September.

On Tuesday, there are runoffs in Alabama and Texas, along with congressional primaries in Maine.  Among other things, we'll learn who the general election challenger to the incumbent U.S. Senator in each of these three states is going to be. All are on the competitive radar (to varying degrees) in November.
